The Law of Big Data

Big Data Governance Beyond Personal Data

The echo of the new GPDR gives the impression that the legal issues about big data will concentrate on personal data. The approach is mainly due to the acknowledged importance of the EUCFR, article 8, which suggests and consolidates this idea of data governance.

Big data, however, impact other different domains, going beyond personal data. This perspective, therefore, risks being misleading and neglects other relevant aspects.

Data, indeed, have significant legal interests for different reasons (e.g. openness and transparency of government or secrecy for security or commercial purposes) and their informational and computational power may affect further relevant fundamental rights.

The lecture aims to analyze this broader scenario, considering these other themes historically related to data protection (e.g. copyrights and trade secrets; database establishment; public/private re-use of information; intelligence issues; non-personal data regulation).

The final objective is to offer a more clear and comprehensive understanding of the current state of the art, highlighting the possible developments in the regulation of these fields.
